Award-winning singer and former Red Deer College student Kim Wempe will unleash her smoky, powerhouse vocals this week at the Scott Block in Red Deer.

Since leaving RDC, Wempe moved to Nova Scotia, where she won a 2009 East Coast Music Award for her debut album Where I Need to Be.

The Saskatchewan native followed up with her critically acclaimed 2010 CD, Painting With Tides, which featured duets with Joel Plaskett and others. It was nominated for an ECMA and two Music Nova Scotia Awards.

Her third full-length album, Coalition, was released in September.

Wempe is touring from Newfoundland to Vancouver in support of the CD before performing at the Woodford Folk Festival in Australia in December.

Tickets for her 8 p.m. performance on Saturday, Nov. 16, at the Scott Block are $20 at the door, or are available in advance from www.picatic.com.
